Minkah Fitzpatrick Was in the Bathroom During the National Championship's Biggest Moment

Millions upon millions of people watched as Alabama stunned Georgia with a 41-yard touchdown pass to win the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in overtime.

Time and time again, Fromm found ways to get his team out of trouble. "The message to the team after this game was I hope you take something from this game and the resiliency that you showed in this game and it helps you be more successful in life".

"It would not surprise me, ' Arians said when asked by Fox Sports" Colin Cowherd if Saban might consider taking another shot at the NFL. Rather than following the protocol of loyalty by staying with quarterback Jalen Hurts, Saban chose to throw the second half into the hands of freshman Tua Tagovailoa. "I think Tua's done that for him all year long". Who else would have had the nerve to pull a second-year quarterback who was 25-2 as a starter for a true freshman who had not taken a meaningful snap all season.at halftime of the biggest game of the year?

Nick Saban nearly definitely isn't leaving Alabama after winning a fifth National Championship as head coach of the Tide. He stepped up when his team needed him - that's what he does.

Eli Gold plays word association games. Georgia sniffed out a screen pass, Tagovailoa couldn't pick up his next option and Georgia dumped the youngster for a 16-yard loss.

"It was surreal, it was so unexpected because we pretty much thought Alabama lost", said Honolulu resident Brandon Lee, who was driving home when friends started texting him to let him know that Tagovailoa was in the game.

That's according to former Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, who recruited Tagovailoa to Tuscaloosa until his departure to become the head coach of Florida Atlantic in December of 2016.

Tagovailoa attended a Saint Louis football camp when he was in the fourth grade, and in a story in The Oregonian back in 2014, he said Mariota took him under his wing at the camp.

More history: The last time he was in the National Football League, his Miami Dolphins went 15-17 during a tumultuous tenure in which he said he wouldn't be leaving for Alabama - until he did. He was not resigning to a better game plan demonstrated by Georgia in the first half; he was leading.

It was especially troubling because Alabama's kicker, Andy Pappanastos, already had missed two previous field-goal attempts, including a shanked kick at the end of regulation that would have won the game. "It put us out of field-goal range". I know people are going to go that's hyperbole... Besides, Arians says, "they're the Giants".

"I could tell which side was the Alabama side".

That kind of focus makes it way through the Alabama program and, even with full knowledge that the Tide can't win a title every year, Saban at the helm should provide incredible optimism to that fan base in the coming years.
